The Toronto Raptors announced Thursday they have signed forward Justin Champagnie (Sham- Penny) to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Champagnie, 6-foot-6, 210 pounds, averaged 2.3 points, 2.0 rebounds and 7.8 minutes in 36 games as a rookie with Toronto last season. He shot .463 (31-67) from the field, .357 (10-28) from three- point range and scored in double figures twice.
A native of Brooklyn, New York, Champagnie also appeared in 14 regular season games with Raptors 905 in the NBA G League. He averaged 21.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 36.0 minutes, while shooting .489 (109-223) from the floor. Champagnie scored 20+ points eight times with the 905, including a season-best 45 points Mar. 25 at Wisconsin, and recorded five double-doubles.
Champagnie signed a two-way contract with the Raptors last summer after playing two collegiate seasons at Pittsburgh (2019-21) where he became the first player in school history to lead the Panthers in scoring as both a freshman and sophomore.
